Grand Canyon - The short version

I finally got around to posting Grand Canyon pics... I'll blog the trip here in a couple of days but wanted to get the best part up sooner. El Presidente took all of the pictures, and did such a great job that I had a heck of a time deciding which ones to post. If you want to see more, let me know... I have everything he took with the digital camera on cd in my office.

As you'll notice, most of the pictures are from on the way down. As we were going up we were concentrating more on just making it to the top than taking pictures...

Technical Difficulties, Part II

So Chris and I have figured out why my pictures aren't showing up... Our work's firewall is blocking them for some reason. If you click on the pictures, you get the "This site is unappropriate" Blue-Screen-Of-Death. They still work from home, though. And I'm posting a test picture with this blog in a different format to see if that works...

Anyway, I hope you all have a safe and wonderful week while I'm in Arizona.

Alf - May Mason let you sleep.
Chris - Keep an eye out for my twin that comes into CPOR.
Matt - I know it's going to be tough getting used to civilization again, but hang in there.
Lisa - My heart and prayers (to spirits, God, the Space Brothers, and anyone else who's listening) are with you. If you need anything, please don't hesitate to call.
BBot - I promise I won't do anything the Crystal Kid wouldn't do.
Tera - I hope your reunion was great (that was last week, right??).

Love you all and see you in a week.
